Ancient Bathhouse in Nazareth
Ancient Bathhouse in Nazareth Review
In 1993, Elias and Martina Shama-Sostar were renovating their crafts shop when they discovered ancient steam pipes under the store. Further excavation revealed a huge, wonderfully preserved Roman-style bathhouse. Israel's Antiquities Authority has not made any official announcements about the site, but several historians who have visited speculate that the bathhouse might date from the 1st century AD. A one-hour tour takes you to the hot room, the heating tunnels, and the furnace. Coffee is served in the arched hall where wood and ashes were once kept.
